Not 100 per cent sure , but don't the law still state all fish snagged must be kept?ARGROUNDSWATTER said:Are you talking about snagging suckers? We snag redhorse suckers sometimes in the spring when they make their spawning runs in the rivers. I take a large treble hook and squeeze a split shot on the bottom of each hook. Then I put a small white twister on one of the hooks so I can see the hook under the water. I always wade out into the river on a shoal with the fish. Stand still for a little while and the fish will swim right up to you. When you see a fish approaching swing the hook up stream of the fish and let the fish swim over the hook or let the hook drift under the fish. The scales are really tough on suckers and the best place to snag one is on the mouth or head. My reel of choice is an old Zebco One on a fiberglass rod. I had a possible state record redhorse on for a short time a few years ago and it was jumping like a trout going up stream and peeling line. There is a limit on suckers now because of people killing them and letting them rot on the bank. If you are not going to eat them or use them for fertilizer under your tomatoes please practice catch and release. GOD put all animals here for a purpose and their is no reason to waste a resource like this.
